I used the Cute Skirts pattern by Favorite Things. I made the Panel skirt (the green floral one pictured above).The pattern was simple and easy to follow. Not a lot of information for each step i.e. how to press seams, so it makes it easy to read. I think next time I may make it in one size smaller then I measured at. It feels kind of big but I think the size is right for pulling it easily over my hips. I will have to wear it a bit before I make the next one.
I used some Anna Marie Horner Fabric from her Bohemian line that I got at Holly Hill Quilt Shoppe, during their Super Bolt sale ($3 a yard and I only had to wait 4 hours in line). I am a sucker for a sale. The fabric line is full of wonderful paisley and great summer/spring colors. Unfortunately the line has been discontinued so it is really difficult to find. But the good news is that it seems like a few of the designs have made there way into her new line Good Folks.
